If I was willing to spend 7 grand on an engine, I would look very hard at
the Jabiru and
maybe spend a bit more for it.
The weight is not much more than the HKS. And it doesn't turn 7000 RPM!
Observing the limits for the Q1 airframe you would never strain the engine.

The HKS 700 would probably work great if you can afford it. They should
really call it the HK$7000. The 503 really transforms the Q1.

Gentlemen:
Where can I obtain information regarding conversion of a Q1 to a Rotax
503?
Is there any literature available, especially anthing regarding
performance
capabilities with this engine. Also, would any of you Q1 owners care to
express an opinion regarding the feasibility/desirability of an HKS 700
engine in a Q1?

Thanks,

Jordan

Just Do It

Michael D. Callahan <micallahan@...>
 

    Well, I finally worked up the guts (and had a couple of free hours due to cancelled tours at the museum) and stuck my right wheelpant back on. It was a lot worse to think about than to do. Now all I have left is to reshape the foam, grind the glass back for a lap and lay it back up.
    Again, these planes are very simple to repair... just dig in.  Mike C.


Dynamic Balancing

Bruce Crain
 

To the "Groupies",
I have had a slight vibration in my Q200 since it was completed. I am
very particular about my "bird". I have been in touch with a company
that does "dynamic balancing" of the prop, spinner, engine. Apparently
sensors are hooked to the engine and it balances the "fan" sort of like a
tire balancer. Any one have any experience with the "dynamic balance
act"? Inquiring mind wants to know.

By the way, I've started on the engine mount and have
confirmed that only the ring gear and the starter's snout
has to be recessed into the firewall. So the "mag box" is
going to be about 1.5" deep, and 12" in diameter. This means
that anyone considering the removal of a VW from a Q2, and
the installation of a Corvair engine, won't have to remove and
shorten the header tank like on an 0-200.

Re: Aerobatics

Maybe I was being a little generous when I said hammerhead. He said he would
dive it for speed at full throttle and then pull up and kick the rudder with
just enough speed and thrust to get the nose pointing the other direction.
He was very young at the time!

Your friend have an idea of his roll rate or breakout force?

If some one was considering a bigger header tank, they would need to consider
the effects it would have on W&B. My 2 cents worth.

No problem, Mike. Just wanted to keep the rookies in the clear. I haven't
mastered the "Lumchevak", "Checkoslavak" (or how ever you spell it) myself.
I am getting a little Christian Eagle time. Wouldn't even think of
something
like that in a Q. I know only one truly insane test pilot type who HAS done
a tail slide in a Q-200, but it scared him so bad he refuses even minor
acro
in a Q now. The thought the good olde FAA considers a 90 degree bank acro!
